Festival Information

Eden Festival 2013 Overview

The Eden Festival returns to the meadows of Rae Hills Nr Moffat, spinning the whole colourful, funkin’ carnival back into life. Delving further into pandora’s box of tricks to bring you a kaleidoscope of sights, sounds and people to create the most fantastical Eden Festival to date. Set across an expanse of stages, arenas, stalls, workshops, alleys, back street boozers, nooks n crannies, playgrounds and glades amongst the stunning broadleaf trees, the festival welcomes you to Eden and lives up to its namesake paradise.

A true community festival, built by the people of the Gallowa' and now run by a not for profit community group of people from across the Gallowa', Eden is the beating heart of the community it lives in.

Artists booked to appear include Caravan Palace, Sam and the Womp, The Correspondents, and the Electric Swing Circus. 

Eden Festival 2013 Event Info

Eden is a welcoming, atmospheric, family friendly festival, located in the stunning Raehills Meadows and will be set across 8 stages.

The whole aim behind the festival is to provide a 3 day celebration of music, dance, colour, culture and community built on an ecologicaly sound and carbon friendly set of principles and to exhibit live music hand in hand with stunning decorations and surroundings.

Carbon emmissions from the festival will be calculated by the local Crichton Carbon Centre after the festival.

Disabled Access

There will be disabled toilets on site and some hard cored paths, though most of the main arena will just be grass (albeit mostly flat and cut).
